Q&A: How Helsingborg is creating the first city climate investment plan



You've been wondering...

On December 1st, we held a webinar in partnership with the City of Helsingborg. The webinar focused on Climate Investment Plans (CIP) and was a deep dive into Helsingborg's experience of creating their first Climate Investment plan focused on the city's Transport sector.  

We have compiled a Q&A with the key questions asked by audience. 

Best practice from Helsingborg

Answered by the Helsingborg team: Elin Sundqvist (Climate Strategist), Milou Mandolin ( Climate Strategist), Niklas Bäckström (Financial Controller)

How do citizens and businesses participate in Helsingborg’s municipal program?

How will Helsingborg operationalize its climate investment plan to unlock additional funding?

Are you working with the whole investment budget and policies behind it to calculate CO2-emissions where you have planned investments?

Will your CCC action and investment plans be duplicates or will they be combined plans?

What is the policy result of working with a climate investment plan in Helsingborg?

What is next for Helsingborg?

Data inputs, costs and investments within ClimateOS

What type of data is used as an input in ClimateOS?

Can you explain how costs are estimated in ClimateOS?

Does the tool cover public and private investments?

Is there a way to split out the financial benefits of a transition and the co-benefits?

How does ClimateOS handle the integration of private investments into the CIP?

How did you estimate the investments that need to be done by the municipality for bike paths/parking?

Are the investment costs for cars taken into account in the models?

How is uncertainty in the financial benefits considered and visualized in the system?

Is ClimateView based on the EU ECOFIN Guide for evaluating investment, costs and benefits?

Do you have any examples of how to attract private finance into otherwise unattractive (to investors) areas of the transition like Entangled Challenges?

Using ClimateOS

Can ClimateOS be used by a region or is it just available at the City/ Municipality level?

Can you add external stakeholders in Climate OS and fine tune stakeholder attribution?

Are scope 1 & 2 emissions included in ClimateOS?

Can the tool address political will gaps?

Which other indicators are included in ClimateOS?

Can you adjust or add time horizons, to add shorter and longer targets?

How about monetization of non monetary benefits, like externalities?
